Catalogue Note

Formerly an organist at St. Peter's in Salzburg, Ignaz Assmayer (1790-1862) came to Vienna in 1815. One of his subsequent positions there (from 1825) was of organist to the Imperial Chapel. A friend of Schubert (another of Salieri's pupils), he was one of the 50 composers in the 1820s who supplied a variation on Diabelli's famous theme for the second part of the Vaterländischer Künstlerverein.
